Thanks very much for updating the ACGA Webpage.
Here's current info for North and South Carolina, as
best as I can provide it. Should be better come April.
Please add these to the ACGA website, if you don't
PLANT community garden program (Mecklenburg County
Waste Reduction/Composting/Recycling program sponsors)
Cornelius, NC, Robbins Park Community Garden
(Cornelius Park and Recreation sponsor):
Dovetail garden (Joan Bankemper project, funded by
SEEDS garden program, Durham, NC
There are other significant gardens out there,
including the reawakening community garden program in
Asheville, NC; the 'Charlotte Green' inner city garden
program in Charlotte, sponsored by Myers Park United
Methodist Church; and the very large (15 acre plus)
community gardens at Hilton Head Plantation and Sea
Pines in Hilton Head, SC. There's are also
restorations of Moravian community gardens dating from
the 1760s near Winston-Salem, NC. Unfortunately, none
of these have websites.
The Tom's of Maine winner (thanks, Tom!) is
Charlotte's Urban Ministry Center's Community Garden
for the homeless, a PLANT co-sponsored garden.
ACGA will be holding the Growing Communities Training
in the Carolinas, in Cornelius (near Charlotte) on
April 8-9. We're recruiting now by invitation, but if
any Carolina readers are interested (N or S), please
contact Ann Gill at 704-336-5359 or
firstname.lastname@example.org, or Don Boekelheide,
email@example.com. We're hoping to encourage
greater cooperation and exchange of ideas among
community gardeners/greeners in our area.
